Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

-- Big Mike

he has put a limit on what he CAN do.

"Amateurs hope, Professionals steal." -- John Carter

40 tips for maintaining a professional state of mind

I read some from your link. Apparently she doesn't trade anymore.
The tips were generally good.

This one was interesting:


"Trading should be boring, like factory work."


You have a quote from Market Wizards as your signature, so I'll comment on that.
I actually read Market Wizards many years ago. I liked it. There is one thing I remember about 'hope' which
is in the image below, taken from the book. Hope is supposed to be so so bad in trading, but for those traders
that stick with the trend until it ends, I think hope is just fine. Like so many things in life it really depends on
what you do with it. The knife you cut carrots with, can cut your finger as well.

"Instead, traders should...hope for a larger profit."

- Stephen

that quote as well as the "40 tips" are from John Carter's book Mastering the Trade, which this person put up on their website. I believe the quote, as well as the tips, are primarily geared towards day trading, which only allows a finite amount of time for hope.

In regards to following the trend until it ends, I was always partial to:

"Sometimes the best trades are the ones you don't make."

There is a quote I found by Jean-Jacques Rousseau

"Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet."

One has to wait for the probabilities to shift to one's favor. But waiting for the
perfect time is just waiting too long.

"Patience has its limits. Take it too far, and it's cowardice."

- George Jackson

==============================================

Somewhat off-topic, it is the same way in music. This is more often
heard in wind instruments.

"silence is music too"


The song Old Bear Spirit is below. In the song there are a number of
pauses, ie. silence. If they weren't there, it wouldn't be the same song.
One can easily hear this just by listening to only the first 30 seconds of the video.

Just some quotes from Markets Wizards. It is on-line at the link below.
Some/most of these might have been already posted.

===================================================



A common mistake is to
think of the market as a personal nemesis. The market, of course, is totally
impersonal; it doesn’t care whether you make money or not.

Regardless of the approach used, once a strategy is selected, the trader should
stick to his game plan and avoid impulsive trading decisions.

Most people make the mistake of increasing their
bets as soon as they start making money. That is a quick way to get wiped out.

You have to have a total disregard for money.
